Odds makers gave Dallas a much greater chance to win Sunday’s game after the injury happened.

But as the Cowboys point out, the Jets have a great defense that will be tough to beat.

"They can get after. They got a great pass rush. You watch that game Monday. They had a hell of an offense, just a few points. So, we know the challenge we have on our hands and they’re a good defense and I expect to see all that come Sunday," said Dak Prescott, the Cowboys’ quarterback.


Dallas Cowboys disappointed they won’t face Aaron Rodgers

The Dallas Cowboys said they are a little disappointed knowing they won’t face Aaron Rodgers in Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.

The Cowboys have a handful of injury concerns.

All-Pro guard Zach Martin was limited in practice Thursday with a groin injury.

Receiver Brandin Cooks did not practice because of an injured knee.

And guard Tyler Smith missed practice with the hamstring injury that kept him out of the Cowboys season opener.

Their status for Sunday is uncertain.
